Mourning Cloak butterfly

Hello everyone. Pictured above is a lovely Nymphalis antiopa, otherwise known as the Mourning Cloak butterfly. I do love nature, and this butterfly has such a subtle beauty. The photographer really has captured that well. These butterflies are found all over North America and even in Asia and Great Britain. ‘Wonder if any of this species are found in the South USA?
